LEHI, Utah, May 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As part of its 45th anniversary celebration, Nature’s Sunshine Products (NASDAQ:NATR) (“NSP”), a leading natural health and wellness company engaged in the manufacture and direct selling of nutritional and personal care products, was named one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health of Chicago, IL for a 10th consecutive year. Out of the more than 3,000 companies across the United States evaluated by Interactive Health, only 156 earned this recognition in 2016, and Nature’s Sunshine is the only company to have received this award each year it has been given—for 10 straight years.

A global leader in nutritional products, Nature’s Sunshine is focused on helping people, including its employees, live healthier lives. The company espouses a “culture of health” that encompasses a variety of activities throughout the year, including a 12-week Fitness Challenge; an annual 5K Fun Run/Walk; a Veggie Challenge; a Walktober walking program; gym membership reimbursements; an annual health fair; complimentary company products and more. Employees are encouraged to select the programs and activities they want to participate in and are rewarded for doing so.

“This is the 10th year we’re honoring the Healthiest Companies in America and it continues to inspire us how successful the winning companies are in building and sustaining employee engagement and inspiring positive health outcomes,” said Interactive Health President and CEO Cathy Kenworthy.

“We are thrilled to be recognized for a 10th consecutive year by Interactive Health,” said Gregory L. Probert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nature’s Sunshine Products. “As a health company, this award validates our efforts to share wellness with the world, starting with the men and women with whom we work. It is a testament to the commitment and character of our workforce, the quality of our premium products and our mission to transform lives throughout the world.”

Thanks to the various activities in the company-sponsored wellness program, each year Nature’s Sunshine employees have seen measurable health benefits in key areas, including lower blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides as well as improved blood glucose levels.

Christine Frazier, Manager of Insurance Benefits and Wellness at NSP, added, “Nature’s Sunshine is truly a remarkable company when it comes to wellness, and the executive support for our wellness program has been key to our success. Their continued support has contributed to an improved daily habit of health for all of our employees.”

“Nature’s Sunshine is serious about real health and wellness for the long-term,” concluded Probert, “and for 10 years running, we’ve walked the talk and set the example. We wouldn’t want it any other way.”
